("Gunsynd" or the "Company")


Investment in Omega Oil & Gas Limited



Gunsynd Plc (AIM: GUN, AQSE: GUN) announces that it has invested AUD$90,000 (approximately £50,000) into Omega Oil & Gas Limited ("Omega") (ASX: OMA), an ASX listed Australian energy and resources company focused on natural gas exploration and oil production.


Omega commenced trading on the ASX at 12:00PM AEDT on Tuesday, 25 October 2022. Omega raised $15,070,000, through the issue of 75,350,000 shares at an issue price of $0.20 per share (the "Fundraise").

Gunsynd subscribed for 450,000 shares at AUD 20 cents for a total consideration of AUD$90,000 (the "Investment") as part of the Fundraise, from the Company's existing cash resources.


Omega holds two explorations permits ("Authority to Prospect" or "ATP") (ATP 2037 and ATP 2038) and a petroleum licence ("PL"), PL 17, in the Surat-Bowen Basin in South-East Queensland, Australia. Omega was incorporated in September 2020 to acquire Cypress Petroleum Pty Ltd from Tag Oil, a TSX listed oil and gas company. Through its acquisition of Cypress Petroleum, Omega holds 100% of ATP 2037, ATP 2038 and PL 17, which together represent a diversified portfolio of exploration and production assets.

Omega intends to execute a two well drilling campaign across both ATP 2037 and ATP 2038, focusing on the Kianga Formation in the Permian. This drilling campaign has two goals; to validate basin centred play, specifically the feasibility of commingled multi-facies production in the Taroom Trough, and to prove commercial prospectivity of the Permian Deep Gas by the application of a fit-for-purpose low cost well design. If successful, these activities will ultimately prove the viability of future gas and liquids development. This drilling campaign, if successful, will materially de-risk the Taroom Trough as a future gas producer in the years to come.

Gunsynd holds 450,000 ordinary shares in Omega representing approximately 0.4% of Omega's issued share capital.


For the year ended 30 June 2022, Omega had turnover of AUD$27,706 and made a loss of AUD$2,005,513.


The Directors of Gunsynd accept responsibility for this announcement.
